I built a gaming computer but once I got all the other hardware I didn't have enough money for a Hard drive. so I used my old 250GB drive. sadly all the games I have installed on it have almost filled it. only 20% free. I have a back up external drive that has all my music, movies, and downloads on it. so the internal C:\ drive only has installed programs on it. I do the disk clean up once in awhile but when I use windirstat almost all of the space is taken up by my installed games. all of which I play often enough that uninstalling them would be redundant since days later I'd reinstall them. is there anything I can do besides getting a new drive or compressing it? or are those my only options?

CPU = Intel i7 950
Motherboard = Asus P6X58D
RAM = Corsair XMS3 DDR3 6X 2GB
Power Supply = Corsair AX1200W
Graphics Card = GTX 580 2-way SLI

I don't think, any miracle here is possible.
Since you need ALL of those games, then your only option is bigger drive.
Compressing files is not recommended.
